HAIM Lit­tle of Your Love

In a de­press­ing week, when it ap­pears psy­chopaths ev­ery­where have agreed that live mu­sic con­certs are the ideal venue for met­ing out harm against in­no­cent peo­ple, there isn’t a hell of a lot to be cheer­ful about. But I’d be will­ing to bet the Haim sis­ters line danc­ing in a bril­liant new mu­sic video di­rected by Paul Thomas An­der­son will put a smile on your face. If only for three and a half min­utes.

THE BREED­ERS Wait in the Car

The Breed­ers’ first new sin­gle since 2009’s Fate To Fa­tal EP is a short, sharp blast from the indie rock past. Court­ney Bar­nett is one of the artists re­ported to have col­lab­o­rated with the band on their as-yet un­ti­tled new al­bum, although it doesn’t sound as though she con­trib­utes here. They play Vicar Street in Dublin this Mon­day week, Oc­to­ber 16th.

YE VAGABONDS Song Long For­got­ten

In­glenook Records Brian and Diar­muid Mac Gloinn are two folk singers from Car­low who’ve col­lab­o­rated with the likes of Glen Hansard, Lisa Han­ni­gan and Vil­lagers. This sin­gle from their forth­com­ing de­but al­bum is a long and brood­ing work rem­i­nis­cent of James York­ston. The al­bum will be launched at the Cob­ble­stone in Smith­field, Dublin next Fri­day night.

IOLITE Sap­phire

Eigh­teen-year-old Colorado na­tive Elina Od­norlav plays the world’s most calmest prison es­capee in this new video. It’s hard to know which is her most shock­ing crime here: flee­ing the scene of an ac­ci­dent, re­ceiv­ing stolen money, speak­ing Bond-vil­lian Rus­sian, mur­der­ing her ac­com­plice or – lit­er­ally – steal­ing candy from a baby... (Oh wait, my apolo­gies. The ac­com­plice isn’t dead. He emerges from the boot at the end of the song and, re­ally, doesn’t even seem all that put out. It turns out she’s left him a note of apol­ogy. Well, that’s nice.)
